facebook LOGOAccording to a recent Pew Research Center study, 11% of U.S. adults still don't use the Internet. That's a significant change from 48% in 2000, but the study revealed that age remains a major factor, with 34% of senior citizens remaining offline. Nonetheless, seniors are more connected than ever. Eighty-six percent of seniors were offline in 2000, but easier-to-use apps and sites — particularly Facebook— brought them online. Pew recently reported that 55% of Americans over the age of 50 use Facebook. If you don’t use Facebook, why not get started and see what you are missing?
